Packers Have "Preliminary Interest" in CB Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman is spending his first day as a free agent with the San Francisco 49ers.

If not for one of the more boneheaded calls in National Football League history, Sherman would be leaving the Great Northwest as a two-time Vince Lombardi Trophy victor.

The Seahawks made the decision to move on from cornerback Richard Sherman on Friday.

Sherman, for his part, says he wants to play for a contender, and the 49ers could be one of the NFL's up-and-coming teams after winning its last five games behind QB wunderkind Jimmy Garoppolo. The days of an Achilles tear being an immediate career-ender are long past, but for a cornerback who never had outstanding deep speed-and is less than three weeks from his 30th birthday-it's hard to think he'll be back to top form before the season starts.

The release means Sherman - who is acting as his own agent - can get a head start on finding his next team. On March 1, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expected Sherman to remain in walking boot for a few more weeks.

The Bulldogs watched as the board was brought out quickly while doctors tended to the injury, checking Weatherspoon's pulse. Weatherspoon, who is averaging 11.3 points per game for the Bulldogs, initially went down while playing offense.


If healthy, Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who excels in physical man-to-man coverage, would be an ideal fit for the 49ers' 4-3 defense.

Sherman had surgery to fix his right Achilles in November. But some players, including former Panthers defenders Jon Beason and Charles Godfrey, needed two seasons before they returned to their pre-Achilles surgery form. Also on the roster are DeAndre Elliott, who saw some action as a rookie in 2016 before spending all of last year on Injured Reserve, and Mike Tyson, a sixth-round pick in 2017 who spent most of last year on the practice squad.

New England enters the weekend with approximately $23 million in cap space, which should enable the team to re-sign Nate Solder and make a run at another prominent player.

If Melvin doesn't re-sign, the Colts will need to bring in at least one solid cornerback in free agency.
